Mykropht III
A rather inhospitable partially terraformed garden world subjected to the intense UV and X-ray radiation from the neutron star Mykropht B. The microflora include Deinococcus radiodurans (introduced from Earth) and Xenobacter mirabilis, which are easily geneered to form symbiotic DNA repair systems used by soft radnads.
